About us

CONO Kaasmakers is a small leading cooperative of dairy farmers based in the Beemster, North Holland.

Our CONO dairy farmers supply high quality milk. Our cheese makers turn it into the tastiest cheese and distinctive ingredients for the food industry. Some of our milk goes into Ben & Jerry's ice cream, for example. We do this in our sustainable, artisanal way according to unique CONO recipes. CONO works with passion and attention to people, animals and the environment.

We build strong brands. In our own Beemster polder of course, in the Netherlands and internationally. In this way, we ensure a fair milk price for the dairy farmers. That way, we can continue to invest in sustainability and animal welfare on the farm and continue to innovate in the cheese-making process.

Sustainability

Sustainability is in our genes. It is part of us. Not just in the CONO cheese factory, but throughout the chain, we work with real attention for people, animals and the environment. From blade of grass to cheese. From cattle farmer to cheese maker.

"Continue to invest in animal welfare and the environment, and sustainable innovation in cheese making. In this way, we will retain our leading position as CONO Cheesemakers, with the tastiest cheese in the Netherlands. I am proud of that!"

-Wim Betten, General Manager CONO Cheese Makers
